Well known bonsai nurseryman, Ashley Brown has been surrounded by plants all his life. He started his horticultural career in 1985 working for one of Australia’s largest propagation nurseries and has owned nurseries since 1993; as a result, there are not many species with which Ashley is unfamiliar. In 2005, he moved to Jililby and opened Bonsai World. Ashley demonstrates throughout NSW and the ACT. His monthly workshops at Bonsai World are always well attended by enthusiasts from Sydney to Newcastle. Keen to continually develop his bonsai skills, Ashley has made many trips to Japan and Vietnam as well as China and the west coast of America to meet and learn from some of the world’s leading bonsai and penjing masters.
